DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKING
Thank you for another great season!! See you in 2024!!
There is no greater thrill than Downhill Mountain Biking at Greek Peak’s Bike Park! With 18 different trails (and counting!), the Bike Park has a full day’s worth of fun for all skill levels. The Visions Quad chairlift will bring you and your bike to the top of the mountain in no time.
Bike Park trails vary in difficulty level, rated Green, Blue, Black & Double Black as ski & ride trails do during the winter season. Green trails are scenic & less steep to cater to folks just starting out in the sport. Blue trails are for more intermediate riders who want to challenge themselves through more technical terrain & take on small features. Black & Double Black trails are for Expert riders looking to take on much more technical riding, large jumps, wooden features, gaps, etc. Not all features on Black and Double Black trails are able to be bypassed.

Buy your ski area season pass in the spring preceding the mountain bike season, not only to take advantage of the lowest early rates but also to enjoy the Bike Park access benefit during the summer. All Ski Season Pass products expire at the conclusion of the Ski Season. Summer 2023 Bike Park access requires a 2023/2024 Ski area Season Pass, a 2023 Bike Park Season pass or a daily lift ticket.
Bike Park & Ski area season passes can be picked up at the Guest Services window 7 days/week beginning in late May 9:30am-4:30pm. Avoid the lines on opening day and head straight to the lift with your GoPass. Riders may need to complete waivers upon pick-up (riders under 18 require guardian signature).
Sharing a GoPass is considered theft of services. Passes can be revoked without refund for anyone caught in this circumstance. Ticket sales support the operation and allow us to grow our trail system and facilitate improvements. Don’t be “that guy.”
